Android 4.4 Update: Samsung, SONY,LG, HTC and Nexus phones/tablets to get it.

This is just an initial list, which is subject to change anytime. 

Samsung Phones/Tablets to get Android 4.4 Update
For now, there is an internal Samsung Knox document which was leaked, and which showed a few devices which are going to get the Android 4.4 update, and the document actually showed the devices which would get the Samsung Knox in the coming update. The devices are as follows:
  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Active
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3
  • Samsung Galaxy Mega (no confirmation whether the 5.8, 6.3 or both)
  • Samsung Galaxy S3
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 & Tab 2
The Galaxy S3 and Note II have been facing a few regional lock issues and that is what is prompting Samsung to come up with a major update on these devices, as confirmed by one of the Samsung representatives. But again, the document mentions it is the S3 which has 2GB of RAM, and that is the U.S. version which might be getting the update, and the International users might have to wait and watch if Samsung has made it ready for their devices too or not.

Sony Phones/Tablets to get Android 4.4 Update

Sony has officially updated the list of the Android phones in the Xperia range which are going to receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update, and these mostly include the recent high-end smartphones. The exact dates are not mentioned, but here are the smartphones which would receive the KitKat update sooner or later.
  • Sony Xperia Z1
  • Sony Xperia Z
  • Sony Xperia Z Ultra
  • Sony Xperia ZL
  • Sony Xperia Tablet Z
The company did mention a few devices which are supposedly going to get the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update and that directs us to a point that these devices aren’t going to receive the KitKat update any time soon. The Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V are the ones which would get the Android 4.3 update directly from Android 4.1 JB, and the devices mentioned above will be getting the Android 4.3 before they see the KitKat update rolling out.

LG Phones to get Android 4.4 Update

We did hear that the LG Optimus G Pro might be receiving the update a little later, but the LG G2, latest flagship smartphone from the company is sure to get the KitKat version of Android very soon after the launch.
  • LG G2
  • LG Nexus 4
  • LG Optimus L7, L5, L3
  • LG Optimus G
  • LG Optimus G Pro
  • LG Optimus VU
Nexus Phones Android 4.4 Update
The Galaxy Nexus won’t get Android 4.4 as quoted by Google, because it has crossed the 18 month window period, while the later devices such as the Nexus 7, Nexus 10 would be getting the Android 4.4 update soon. The Nexus 5 which was launched today, would be coming with the 4.4 out of the box.
